weren't for san francisco republicans love using. two great names here. ashley judd and alison grimes. amazing names. so this is for the big enchilada. the 2014 senate races. can they take out mitchell mcconnell like the senate republicans took out tom daschle a democratic leader a few years ago. democrats are starting to get worried ashley judd is too easy and too much material to work with her so they want basically a blank slate. allison grimes has been the state -- >> secretary of state. >> secretary of state for just a year. joe knows the best way to have a clean record in public office is to not be there very long and someone new in office and with a powerful family in the state. her dad is a union leader. her dad has been the state party chairman. so people love the idea of her running at a state political event. bill clinton took her aside and ad a 35-minute conversation said we are reporting that both he and secretary clinton would support her if she decided to run. >> obviously, love, michael steele, to have judd run whether she is running from tennessee or or san francisco.

talk about somebody being from san francisco. >> ashleyly judd was much easier to defeat and lampoon. this is a guy who looks at his internals and see he is unpopular despite the fact it's a very conservative state. >> why is he unpopular? >> because he's a really conservative guy who has a track record for getting involved in in the most ideological battles and he is not warm and fuzzy and personable. he is powerful and ruthless and i would say like in a good way. he is ruthless in that he will destroy anybody who comes up. they were already popping off about ashley judd when she was a possible rumored candidate easement let's say mcconnell doesn't get a primary challenge. how does that then impact mcconnell's impacts in washington in terms of getting things done? from my perspective, the idea that mitchell mcconnell is afraid of a challenge from right makes it, i think, difficult for him to do anything in washington that smacks of a deal of any kind with the president. do you think it makes it easier to get things done in washington? >> certainly if he doesn't have the challenge fr

she was born in kentucky, lives in tennessee. quotes of her talking about san francisco as her home. tennessee as her home. she'd have to re-establish residency. so already they're trying to paint the idea of her as a crazy liberal, even before she talks about running. >> i think privately there are people inside team mcconnell praying every night that she will run for senate. >> please, god. >> i've heard that bible studies in that office have picked up 75%. and number one on the prayer list, ashley judd. >> stop. >> you know, her own grandmother called her, quote, just another hollywood liberal. true story. >> thanks, grandma. >> my mother says that about me. i'm not going to judge. i'm not going to judge what her grandmother says. she may. and by the way, if she wants to, god bless her. i mean, i'm dead serious. you know, anybody that wants to get into politics -- >> especially women. and if it wasn't in a state like kentucky, i don't think we'd be laughing about her prospects. >> what's next, willie? >> we're certainly not making fun of her decision to want to run. i think that

bohemian club and he wrote some notes, but it was about certain things he was picking in san francisco. do you even remember that weekend? >> i do, joe. it's seered in my memory. that'll never fade. >> but club reference, everybody's wikipediaing that right now. >> ben, what are you guys pursuing in buzzfeed today? >> i think one of the interesting stories, jeb bush, what he's doing, i think whether he can handle the current news cycle. he really botched this week. >> all right. thank you. chuck, we'll see you coming up in a few minutes on "the daily rundown." coming up, the other headlines, including a big change coming to airport security.
